Hi everyone!


I am in the process of starting my teachers license/Master in teaching program summer of 2013. I currently live on spousal/child support and I have used my state assistance calculator and i don't qualify for assistance for things like food stamps, medical and tanf, but it does say that I may qualify for childcare assistance if i am in college.


My question is does it matter if i am in college at a brick and mortar or just taking classes online? I plan to enroll full time. I would like to have 1 day a week where i could take my dd or maybe 2 half days so i can devote more time to my online classes?


Any one know?




ETA: the college i will be attending is a reputable state university about 90 miles away and not a solely online school.

I'm not sure about your state, but in my state one must show a class schedule for hours actually on campus. The subsidy would cover the number of hours in class plus an additional hour before and after class for transit time.
